Debian 2.6.26 ivtv with Hauppage PVR350


Hello,

first post here, have been lurking around for some time, and I thought maybe somebody could help out with an issue I have concerning a Hauppage PVR350 TV tuner card.

I run Debian Lenny/Squeeze on 2.6.26 - and wanted to install the ivtv package, through module-assistant.

The build goes well, but when trying to install - the following error occurs:


Quote:
dpkg: error processing /usr/src/ivtv-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64_1.2.0-1+2.6.26-13lenny2_amd64.deb (--install):
trying to overwrite `/lib/modules/2.6.26-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/media/video/saa717x.ko', which is also in package linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64
Errors were encountered while processing:
/usr/src/ivtv-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64_1.2.0-1+2.6.26-13lenny2_amd64.deb

I: Direct installation failed, trying to post-install the dependencies
For some reason, and from what I found online - saa717x.ko cannot be overwritten, as it is apparantly available in two packages, simultaneously, thus causing an error (I'm not a packaging or kernel expert, mind).

I read the ivtv wiki, and guidelines - the firmware is available under /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware and has proper permissions, so the other requisites should all be met.

I also found some comments on this issue while googling, but nothing conclusive, or informative to make the problem go away.

Would any of you have any more information about this, and a potential fix?

Thanks a lot, already - I appreciate any input a lot.

Kind regards,
Frank

Welcome to LQ.

Sorry, that your 1st LQ post hasn't gotten a response. Sorrier that I have no answers for you. Your post is clearly written & don't understand why you haven't at least gotten requests for clarification or more information. Maybe my reply will stir something up for you.

Edit: Post 3500, another milestone.

No problem - it's still open

Hello,

thanks for the bump. I will be trying to make some more progress on my own, over the upcoming weekend - and will post the results of that searching.

In the meantime, I upgraded to Sid where ivtv packages should be more ingrained in the debian default, so the problem might evolve a bit, hopefully.

Thanks again for the bump - I appreciate your help.

Kind regards,
Frank

Not much happened in the meantime

Hello,

thank you for the followup.

The card is still sitting in my box here, unused at the moment - I can see the ivtv modules are loaded, and at the same time the card is recognized, but it will take more fiddling than that apparently.

I'll post more info when I find some time to take a decent look at it, which should be the next couple of weeks ...

I also migrated back to Squeeze, since Sid was giving me a couple of headaches on other levels, and was just not worth the hassle.
Might be easier now, on Squeeze, as in less bleeding-edge, but we'll have to see about that first ...

Thanks already,

Kind regards,
Frank

I have friends who use sidux as a compromise between testing & pure sid.

Might try that

Hello,

thanks for the tip.
I was also thinking to try out a live distro from ubuntu or perhaps something with binaries on it that provide support for the TV card out of the box, fi. with MythTv bundled on it ... to see how that fares.

Might give some insights in how it can be set up, and go from there to get it going in Debian too ...

From what I see and hear - it should not be too difficult, but time has not been on my side the last couple of weeks, so we'll see how that turns out ...

Thanks for the followup in the meantime!

Kind regards,
Frank

If your device is set up correct you could try this one to watch and record tv

in case this problem still exists, post the output of the following commands:

dmesg | grep ivtv

lsmod

uname -r

btw. I'm using this card for at least 7 years with debian and it has always worked. Also the ivtv modules are included in the kernel now, so it should indeed work out of the box.

From what I gathered earlier on too, all is well on the kernel level, module level and installation level - I must also say that I upgraded recently, so that I am running Squeeze now, and all the afore-mentioned errors have gone away.

I'll hook up cabling and connections later on in the week, and will try to report back on the issue.

Thanks for helping out, all!

Kind regards,
Frank
